Selefa's Group's story

Pictured above is Selefa, who, as a group leader, is representing her group formed by 11 farmers in Kakamega B (North) District, Kenya. She is a mother to 6 children and is known by her community as a very resourceful person.

Initially, Selefa joined One Acre Fund in 2012, because she wanted to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods. Since she joined the program, she says that her life has improved, especially because she has had a healthier life due to better nutrition. With the profits from the coming harvesting season, Selefa plans to buy chicken.

Between the 11 farmers in Selefa's Group, a total of 5.5 acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan. Additionally, some of the farmers in the group will be purchasing a solar light so, with this loan, the group will also receive a total of 5 solar lights.
